Re: ZXR 0.1c (updated)

The initial goal for me was to make it run "good enough" on Falcons/TT, since there are better emulators which could be used on high end machines (I ported x128 many years ago; runs in a window or fullscreen, but likely fails on the Coldfire). Since there seems to be some interest, I migh...

Re: ZXR 0.1c (updated)

Can you port it for FireBee? With a little work it could be made to run on the Firebee, but it won't be native ColdFire code (hence it will be sub optimal). It would probably make more sense to use another emulator in such case. Or, perhaps I should add an additional CPU core written in C... That c...

Then you go to the Console setup dialog and there check to open conslole at the startup. Then you can also setup the size and the fo...

Re: foss-north 2018: Atari ST Free Operating Systems

To fix the incorrect keyboard mapping with this version of Dosbox, simply change "usescancodes=true" to "false" in dosbox-0.74.conf. It does the trick, at least on Falcon. This is great! I will have to test it. If it works on the FireBee it will be very usefull for me :) Thanks!!!

Re: Software alternative

As for Photoline, as far as I know the only one able to make it work is Mathias and nobody has been able to figure out how. This was discussed in this forum somewhere. However, Vision, from Jean Lusetti, might be a good and maybe better alternative since Jean has released it as freeware, and has re...

Why in mint Tilda button is not work? How to fix this?

It depends of your keyboard mapping. You will have to find the right key or key combination.
But you can hold [Alternate] key and type 124 on numeric keypad to get Tilda :)

Re: What is the latest Papyrus version?

The really sad thing is that source code isn't lost and Ulli (one of the authors) isn't totally against doing something in favour of Atari users. FireBee guys had talks about it on and on, at one point he even got a FireBee to port Papyrus over but he (unsurprisingly) didn't find time. IIRC I offer...

Re: VISION 4.1a is out!

There must be some confusion yet. LDG itself comes in both flavors. zView codecs are also built for both. The end user simply installs 68k or coldfire stuff depending on their needs. I think he asks if VISIOn has to be Coldfire compiled to run Coldfire LDGs? And I believe if 68k version of the VISI...

@lp/vido: is there a description for such ldg usable by zview? BTW unless a 680x0 application can load a ColdFire ldg, there is no interest to have this; and compiling VISION for ColdFire may be complicated especially because of the pure 680x0 routines I don't want to port to 'C'. I am sure 68k app...
